Adjusted for inflation 2600 euros in the year 2000 would be worth 4.515 euros today. So the cost of a sub has more than doubled in real terms in the past 23 years. Will a sub be 44.000 euros in the year 2046? Maybe if the emerging markets like China and India take an even bigger share.

Joking aside, it has saved my bacon, for maybe a year or two.

But what a way to save it. When the dough really runs out I鈥檒l still have a smile on my face. Great to share my story with others who understand what a moment like that is all about.

Change that to a speedmaster with the plexi glass and all is good
